Italian based classical death metallers Fleshgod Apocalypse have released the following statement:

Hi all,
With this statement we have to announce the split with drummer Francesco Struglia. We hope the best for him with his job and music careers. Considering how important the presence of a stable drummer is instead of a just having one for sessions, we decided during the last month to move on and give a new shape to the band. Since Francesco Paoli handled the arrangement of all drum parts and I (Paolo) wrote all the lyrics for the album “Oracles”, the best thing it seemed to do was start on playing what each one of us did for the album. This new recording line up is the result:

Paolo Rossi: Vocals – Bass
Cristiano Trionfera: Rhythm/Lead Guitars
Francesco Paoli: Drums – Rhythm Guitars – Back Vocals

At the same time we welcome the new forces of Tommaso Riccardi who will go to the trouble of playing live guitar for us. He's a good friend and a great musician, his skills will support us in shredding everything, everywhere!
Keep up supportin' extreme music!
Paolo & Fleshgod Apocalypse
